ICA to partner International Hydropower Association at World Hydropower Congress
27 January 2017
The Infrastructure Consortium for Africa is to partner with the International Hydropower Association at the World Hydropower Congress, which will take place in Addis Ababa, Ethiopia, from 9 to 11 May 2017.
Organised with the support of the African Union Commission (AUC) and the UN Economic Commission for Africa (UNECA), this is the first time that the World Hydropower Congress will take place in Africa.
The partnership with the International Hydropower Association will provide an opportunity for the ICA to outline the work it undertakes to support and encourage investment in infrastructure development in Africa, and in particular to disseminate its knowledge products relating to renewable energy, financing trends, quality infrastructure and energy resources.
The 2017 World Hydropower Congress will bring together leaders and specialists to set the course for hydropower’s contribution to future energy and water systems. It will explore a diversity of perspectives and will examine how initiatives of governments, businesses, finance, civil society and academia can advance sustainable development.
